How We Met

Unfortunately, it took me all of my high school years to meet my soulmate.

I was a senior and Sara was a junior at Southwick High. Although we attended the same high school, Big Y is where I first laid eyes on Sara. I remember her long red hair and beautiful smile. When I looked at Sara, I felt something I never had felt before.

I can remember being so excited the day I found out Noah was training me for a cashier position. He was so cute... dark hair and beautiful brown eyes.... I loved his name... "Noah" it was so unique yet fitting. When I looked at Noah, I knew we would have an amazing connection.

We became instant friends... in fact Sara, myself, and our mutual friends from school decided to take a limo together to the senior prom... Sara was going to the prom with her good friend Dave, and I was taking Christine, one of our mutual friends.

Lucky for me, our first kiss came that very night.... and the rest is history...

The Proposal

The day finally came when I knew I was ready to marry this girl ... well, financially ready anyway ... i knew she was the one a long time ago. We had been dating for six years when I decided to pop the question.

Ring shopping: ... not as bad as it's made out to be. Thanks to the Hannoush family, I purchased a marquise cut platinum engagement ring.

The plan: Sara and I had just purchased a condo together, and our closing was on New Year's Eve. I wasn't sure if I was going to hide it some place in our new home, or take her on a wild scavenger hunt at my mom's house.

It's funny how things change... Christmas night... Sara was sick all day and was lying in bed... I didn't have any chicken soup, so I thought of the next best thing.

Time to propose... I marched upstairs and retrieved the ring from my soon to be mother-in-law's closet. I was insanely nervous... yet overly excited. I couldn't wait to put this bad boy on her finger.... it had been so hard to keep it from her. So I got down on one knee... and the rest his history....
